begin with mike tobin in watertown. mike, we're hearing from some of those recovery, namely the thrift police officer richard donohue. >> exactly. there's reason to be optimism for his recovery. he was fully engaged in a gun battle with the two bombing suspects. he was hit by a single bullet to the leg. it didn't hit a bone, sever nerves, but it severed three arteries, including the major one, the femoral artery. he lost so much blood his heart stopped. took doctors 45 minutes to get his heart beating again, but now that he's bouncing back his brother is expressing nothing but pride. >> as a brother, fellow officer, and as an american i cannot describe the pride i have how dick, other officers, and emergency personnel acted early friday morning. with complete disregard to their own safety, officers withstood a barrage of gunfire and explosives more reminiscent of a war zone than a quiet suburban street. >> and there was a wake today for 29-year-old crystle campbell, a restaurant manager standing near the finish line when the bombs went off. family and friends will say their good-byes t
needs to step forward now. as he put it, the nation is counting on it. mike tobin with me now. tonight, mike, what do you take from these late developments that we have been watching here in boston? >> well, bill, one of the first things that struck me is gone is this discussion of person of interest or people with whom the federal investigators want to speak. the special agent in charge of the boston office here came right out and used the word suspect. following on what we had reported earlier that federal source had indicated they had a clear image of someone placing a device at the scene where one of the explosions took place. we now know from the feds here in boston that that was a backpack placed at the site of one of those explosions. >> suspect 2 set down a backpack at the site of the second explosion just in front of the forum restaurant. we strongly encourage those who were at the forum restaurant who have not contacted us yet to do so suspect number 2 is the individuals in the white ball cap. our fox affiliate out here is linking that to a polo ball cap with the number three

the suspect wore in those surveillance videos on the dave the bombing. mike tobin is is live in boston where, with details of mike, it's my standing we have learned a lot more about how the fbi zeroed in on these suspects. >> you know, shepard, they really seemed to identify themselves, particularly dzhokhar not so much for what he did on that security video but what he he didn't do. what he didn't do is ability surprised when the first bomb went off. the criminal complaint says virtually every head turns to the east toward the finish line and stares that that direction in apparent bewilderment and. dzhokhar alone in front of the restaurant appears calm. he does glance to the east and turns and leaves quickly but calmly to the west. 10 seconds later, the second explosion goes off according to the fbi at the location where he dropped his -- please don't do that where he dropped his knapsack, shepard? >> mike tobin live for us, thanks very much. if you would like to web site. >> say goodbye to krystle campbell. she'd died in the bombing. 2 years old. restaurant managener medford, massachusetts

have emerged and they're everywhere round it on boylston street, which just re-opened. mike tobin. i hate to keep can use the word extraordinary but one after another after another, the heroes out of this are just -- they're extraordinary. >> you know, that's probably the best way too put. you heard one doctor talking about the experience of these doctors, and of them had experience in combat but their day-to-day was household injuries, work place injuries, car wrecks, and all out once they were overwhelmed with injuries consistent with combat. you hear one doctor say the decision to amputate wasn't one they needed to make. the people came in with limbs so badly battered, so badly damaged, all they had to do was finish off the work that the bomb had started. >> at this point if i have my numbers right, we have performed four amputations, and there are two more limbs that are at risk but i hope we will save those legs. reporter: massachusetts general is the first place we heard from doctors they were removing from the patients ball bearings and nails consistent with the information th

conference begins. mike tobin is in watertown tonight, good evening, mike. >> bret, there really seems to be just one core activity taking place on the streets of water town and that is that door-to-door search that's being conducted by state troopers. it's being conducted by local police. different municipalities being conducted by army national guardsmen and tactical teams. each of them going door to door searching the house guaranteeing that is he not in that particular house it does not appear that they're working on a grid. it appears that they are developing their own information or choosing based on circumstances, which of the houses they will search. beyond that when we hear from the officials, when we hear from the head of the state police, they are basically are using the media as a tool to speak to these people in the neighborhoods, telling them to shelter in place, to be safe, to stay home, lock their doors, only open the doors if it's uniformed officer. the net effect is what you see here. you have got a virtual ghost town. this is the main drag. auburn street in the cente
suspects in the bombing at the marathon here in boston on monday. our correspondent mike tobin is nearby and on scene in watertown. mike, it's my standing that the scene just was overrun in a matter of just a couple of minutes. >> it happened very rapidly. and the scene we are talking about ground zero is just about two blocks in that direction, shep. the way it all went down is that shelter in place order was lifted. and as quickly as it was lifted, you could he see the people returning to the street. the cabin fever had gotten the best of them. a lot of them didn't seem to have anywhere to go. they will wanted to get out of house and walk around. shortly after that, we started seeing some of the police vehicles zooming up in this direction. that wasn't uncommon through this process. you would often times see ing police vehicles zoom in one direction and then another. one cop car and another, three, four, they were all going in the same direction. pretty soon you had the police helicopter overhead it became apparent that something was going on. so, and that is how it all came down. that
